I mentioned this at the VI last Saturday. Seemed like there might be some interest. Hector and I will be attending. We'll probably leave from his house by 8 am. Anyone else interested?

Mille Miglia Demo Day

April 14 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm
The 1000 mile race around Italy held 1927-1957
The Mille Miglia (“Thousand Miles”) started in 1927 and was one of the most popular races in Europe. The cars departed from Brescia on the “Partenza,” and raced down the east coast of Italy to Rome, making a circle back to where they started, a distance of about a thousand miles. A large number of cars were entered, sometimes several hundred, and it could take up to half a day for all to depart Brescia, equally spaced.

The prestige of the event and large number of entrants spurred companies like Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, and others to make special models specifically to compete in the Mille Miglia.
